Great location and the staff was very helpful. The location was perfect for the F1 race. 5min walk to estacia del nord where the shuttlebusses comes to take you to the circuit of catalunya. You have a view at the arc de triomph.

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed here 3 nights during a holiday in Spain. Absolutely loved this place. It's very trendy and my room was modern, clean with a comfy bed and all amenities provided. The rooftop pool is nice to cool down and the views are amazing. The location is very good because you are a short walk away of the old city and the metro is 2 minutes away. Breakfast was good with a good choice of bread, juices, cereals, eggs, fruit, ... . I would go back for sure!

This is a fab hotel with lovely facilities and staff. My friend (from USA) and I (UK) stayed here and felt totally at home. The location is great - close to lots of restaurants and shops - and easy to navigate back to in a taxi as it’s so close to the Arc de Triomf landmark. The bed was massive and comfortable and the room and bathroom area was massive and spacious. If I had to be picky, the only small issue would be is that the bathroom area isn’t massively private - you have to move the mirror across so you can’t see the inside of the shower from the bed. Obviously if you’re close friends or family this isn’t an issue but could be difficult depending on who you’re sharing with! Still 10/10 though.

This is not a hotel for older adults. In a great part of Barcelona. Staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Room was small with no room to open bags. Room with a view of other guests hanging out their laundry to dry.

This is a lovely hotel in El born area, great for exploring the local area El Raval , Gothic area but also can walk to la Ramblas. Taxis are easily accessible for exploring the sights further afield. The hotel is well designed and we had a quiet courtyard facing room which we found was compact but spacious enough for our 3 night stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room was equipped with tea, coffee and shower gel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary bottle of fizz to celebrate our Anniversary. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Breakfast was well stocked with a variety of fresh food and we enjoyed sitting in the rooftop bar area for breakfast but also to enjoy the view of the city in the sunshine.

We stayed at Hotel Rec Barcelona in April 2022 and we will definitely be back the next time we visit the beautiful capital of Catalonia. From the hotel, you are within walking distance of a lot of attractions, bars, and restaurants. The hotel is very nice and clean and the service is excellent. We recommend visiting the roof-top lounge and bar in the afternoon for a cool drink or a swim in the pool whilst watching the sun set over the city. The hotel manager Nayden and his team made it a very comfortable stay and we hope to be back soon.
